PhD in Demography

The demography programme at UCT accepts a small number of students each year for study towards a PhD in demography.

The course of study follows the British model of a three-year research degree by thesis only. As a result, a strong postgraduate background in demography is essential. Students without the requisite academic history should consider registering for the course-work component of the MPhil and then upgrading their Master's research project to a PhD.

Students interested in pursuing doctoral research in demography at UCT should contact Associate Professor Tom Moultrie in the first instance.
